In 1958, St. John Terrell was operating three Music Circuses, in Lambertville, NJ; Neptune, NJ; and the Brandywine Music Circus in Concordville, PA. These three venues formed his "theater circuit". Each theater would mount a production and then after performing for a week or two, would move on to another theater in the circuit. That is the reason for several "resident companies" listed at the bottom of the page.
